Movable Type has Dynamic and Static publishing built into the software. In other words, changes made to a page on the website will need to be published in order for the changes to be saved. The data is stored in a database; however, the files are written as HTML files that are not required to run MySQL queries when its visited.

This applies to the Blog as well. The initial blog entry is published to the page and stored in the database for access when the site is published again. Aftr Blog entries, comments, and other editrs are made, the static page is created on the server.
